Process

During a summer workshop at Art New England in 2006, I made a series of simple inkblots. I drizzled and dropped black india ink onto one half of a sheet of drawing paper, then folded the paper, pressed gently, and opened the sheet to reveal often surprisingly beautiful images. I made about a hundred of these blots and photocopied the 30 most interesting ones onto transparencies. I then projected the images onto large (30" x 40") sheets of printmaking paper (Rives BFK). After carefully painting the shapes with black acrylic paint, I re-painted each inkblot with glue and then covered the glue with black glitter. The resulting grouping is about 8 feet by 8 feet.
